George Carlin reported dead from heart failure.
He said anyone that believed in God had mental problems. Imagine how surprised he is at this moment.
I don’t like seeing folks buy the farm. Sorry to see George go.
He was 71? Wow. I thought he was alot younger than that!
Sometimes you gotta move, gotta get a bigger house. Why? No room for your stuff anymore. Did you ever notice when you go to somebody else's house, you never quite feel a hundred percent at home? You know why? No room for your stuff. Somebody else's stuff is all over the goddamn place! And if you stay overnight, unexpectedly, they give you a little bedroom to sleep in. Bedroom they haven't used in about eleven years. Someone died in it, eleven years ago. And they haven't moved any of his stuff! Right next to the bed there's usually a dresser or a bureau of some kind, and there's NO ROOM for your stuff on it. Somebody else's s--t is on the dresser.
Have you noticed that their stuff is s--t and your s--t is stuff? God! And you say, "Get that s--t offa there and let me put my stuff down!"
What can I say, he’s one of the few comedians that I actually find funny.
Sad. He was a mess, though.
May he rest in peace.
Wow, in the hospital and the still couldn’t save him!
No wayyyyy THE GEORGE CARLIN
I think your reaction may be a common one for those who have not been fans for 50 years .
Here’s the Reuters story, via Drudge:
We’re losing a lot of these old great ones lately. RIP, Mr. Carlin, you made me laugh.
And through our tears of grief, let us endeavor to never forget the flatulent hilarity that ensued each time George graced us with his presence. Surely the Seraphim themselves are pulling upon his finger at this very moment.
No! No! No!
“We think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference?!”
Saw George live at the Circle Star (San Carlos, CA) in the early 70’s. He walks to center stage (it was a round revolving stage) and after all the cheering and whistles settle down, he is hit by a single spotlight. The very first thing out of George’s mouth was: “Did ya ever notice how your own farts don’t smell bad??” the place went crazy...
He used to do...
